Crimson Lord Argel Tal and Cyrene Valantion. Inspired by some extracts from the wonderful novel by A. Dembski-Bowden "The First Heretic" (yay, I wish there would be several more chapters about those two).
About 3 hours, hope to finish it one day.

Well, guys, here is a small update. I'm very grateful to those who wrote me and showed a post in a blog of Aaron Dembski-Bowden. That was a great wow-wow-wow-surprise. :)
And this... aarondembskibowden.wordpress.c…
I'm really happy because I got a biggest reward an artist can have. Especially in case of Cyrene and Argel Tal who became my favourite characters from the very begining of the novel.

Hey! I'm reading this awesome novel and I was looking for a drawing of Cyrene. I was surprised because this was the only one I found, so I decided to make my own fanart too. I hope you take an eye on it, and tell me what you think, they're very different, but everyone has a different way to imagine characters.

By the way, I really like your drawing and its variations. I like the way you used the brushes and colours, fantastic work!

Here is mine: Click here

See you!

Oh Lord... My favorite "Horus Heresy" character, Argel Tal...
He looks so human in your piece, I almost expect him to lend his hand towards Cyrene...
First time EVER I am rendered silent by ANY artwork... Wonderful job here

Thank you very much for the kind words. I like this character too. Actually that novel greatly staggered me and I couldn't keep myself from drawing something to describe my emotions.

Thought I'd point out as well that ADB is also using the middle piece as his avatar on B&C if you didn't know.
